Are there litter issues to pick up on?
We need a litter picking rota. Mon-Wed classes take turns to litter pick after lunch. Thursday ECO group litter pick after composting their class food waste.
Do we need new bins in class to encourage recycling and composting?
P3A require a bin for milk cartons. They are presently only recycling paper.
Are classes composting?
Classes require new composting caddies to encourage them to compost weekly. Mr Burgess will contact the council regarding new caddies.
We should have a no electricity day to help save power. We could also have an outdoor learning day during term 3.
We should use an energy meter to measure usage within the school.
